When the economy started to show troubling signs, many decided to skip college and join the workforce earlier.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than 60 percent of U.S. workers don't have a bachelor's degree, but if you have an associate’s degree, a postsecondary non-degree award, or a high school diploma, you can still get a high-paying job.

The BLS provided a list of 80 high-paying occupations that don't require a college degree. The median annual wages listed include hourly, weekly, annual pay, sales commissions, and production bonuses. Overtime wages are not included in the data.

Look, nothing on yahoo is useful... Period!

They're just click•s -- it's all about the ad revenue.

The tech industry pays a lot better than most of those, anyway. ^.^ Companies like.. oh, say, yahoo!

67k is the median annual wage not median annual starting wage. I didn't have any work experience for my first job and it did average in the 60s but it obviously did require on the job training.

Hello Homer!
I know a couple of nuke operators. They both have nuclear engineering degrees. But most of the direct training is done by the company after you're hired.
